One of the things I love most about the transition into the fall season is the shift in fashions. Gone are the halter tops and bright colors of summer, making way for deep, rich hues and textures. I love all of the great wardrobe options for fall. Whether it be in skinny jeans, boots and a cardigan or a pretty sweater dress, fall is the season when women really seem to shine.
A huge part of fall fashion is accessories. I actually separate all of my handbags, hair accessories, and jewelry into different seasons. To me, fall accessorizing is all about colors, class, and elegance. I love jewel tones, earthy colors, and feminine detailing.
This is why I immediately fell in love with my Plaid Ruffle Purse from Alexa's Angels! It's absolutely beautiful and embodies everything fall represents to me.
Before I give you the scoop on this charming bag, I'd love to tell you more about Alexa's Angels. This is an amazing company run by Beth, a designer and mother who has a huge heart. Beth began selling her designs at art shows in 1995, and got a fabulous response from her customers. Since then, Beth and "her angels" have grown Alexa's Angels into a fashion-forward accessory company for people of all ages. Just as in the beginning, each piece is thoughtfully designed to inspire heartfelt emotions. Wearable, giftable and meaningful, designs by Alexa's Angels create connections and nurture a sense of well-being.
"We believe it's important to create products with a message to connect and uplift. That's the true inspiration behind every piece we design".
Beth is a Colorado artist. To know her is to embrace her contagious smile and love for people and the world around her. She is the mother of four beautiful children, company namesake Alexa, Emma Rose, Joshua and Elijah. "My children are my confidantes, design consultants, and generators of youthful fun. Their unique perspectives and energy help me make connections with a whole new generation."
Proud to be a company with a social conscience, the team at Alexa's Angels is dedicated to creating, finding and supporting programs that benefit women. Their mission is to be a great example of how a socially responsible company can make a difference. How cool is that?! I love companies that have a heart and give back to the community.
The awesome folks at Alexa's Angels sent me their Emma Rose Plaid Ruffle Purse to review. When it arrived, it was beautifully packaged. I felt like a kid at Christmas!
This chic little purse is made from a super-soft wool/polyester blend. It feels a lot like one of those cozy, warm pea coats that are so popular during the cooler months. It also features a satiny silver ruffle with burgundy trim, which is a flirty, feminine touch that I adore. The back of the purse is unadorned.
The interior of the bag is roomy, fully lined and has 2 pockets (one zippered pocket.) The purse is generously sized without being too big at 13.5" x 3.5" x 9". This is a nice size for everyday use as well as date night. You can easily store all of your essentials in this purse (with room to spare) without feeling weighed down. The purse closes with a magnetic snap closure that is quite secure.
Overall, I love my Emma Rose Plaid Ruffle Purse. As a matter of fact, I am taking it with me this evening when my husband and I have our first real "date night" in ages. We're going to see my Dad's band play at a local venue. I know this purse will go perfectly with the outfit I've chosen to wear!
I would definitely recommend Alexa's Angels for all of your accessorizing needs. Not only do all of their pieces have a positive message behind them, they also donate proceeds from all sales to help women in need. You just don't get any better than that!
